TEKTITE

Tektite is a type of natural glass, chemically and structurally unique, of meteoric origin.  These Tektites are known as Indochinites, and are found on earth within a narrow equatorial belt 80 degrees wide.  They have been found in Thailand, Australia, Viet Nam and the Phillipines.  Tektites usually have a heavily pitted surface.  Many have the appearance of being stretched while in a molten state. They appear black, but when smaller, thinner ones are held up to the light, you can sometimes see a golden tint in translucent areas around the edges.  Estimated date of fall 750,000 years ago. The exact origin of Tektites is still debated today.  Two basic theories are:
1.) It is meteoric glass from deep space.
2.) It is a type of impactite produced by crater forming meteorites on the surface of the moon or earth.

Metaphysical Properties:  Assists one in attaining knowledge and learning lessons throughout the travels of life. Balances the feminine/masculine, provides insight, strengthens one's energy field. Can stimulate thought transmissions.
